The event for Collin’s birthday still continued. ๐Ÿ™‚ When a birthday for one of our close friends comes up, we plan to get together. This time was no exception. We gathered up for him and had dinner.

He chose the restaurant, Shanghai Xiao Long Bao. It is located in a couple of blocks away from Waterfront station. Our friends arrived there first and were guided to the party room, but they seemed to ask to seat at an open table instead. As far as I see, the room was cozy but you maybe feel suffocated.

We ordered dishes with meat or veggies, as one of us does not eat seafood.

This tasted good! The sweetness was just right.

Steamed Pork Bun (6 pieces)

One of the friends said she preferred this to pan-fried one. I preferred pan-fried.

Moo Shu Pork
(Sauteed Sliced Pork, Eggs and Black Fungus)

I didn’t know what moo shu was. It is basically a stir-fry with wood ear mushroom (black fungus) and eggs. I never liked the mushroom, but I liked this dish. That’s good! Thin pancake came with this dish, and you eat, wrapping moo shu, like Fajita.

Fried Green Beans with Minced Pork in Spicy Sauce

As the name said, it was spicy! With all other dishes, it was a great kick.

Baked Scallion Pancake

This vegetarian dish was much tastier than I thought. I believe green onions were inside, and I don’t remember if there were the other veggies. ๐Ÿ˜›

Pan-fried Pork Bun (6 pieces)

This is always good! Hot juice comes out when you bite. Watch your mouth, don’t get burn!

Pan-fried Pork Dumplings (6 pieces)

All dishes were so good. I’m glad that I found more dishes that I like from this restaurant.

And, as usual, we got some birthday cake. From where? It will be revealed in the next post. ๐Ÿ™‚

On the second day of the Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend, my new friends whom I met at the baby shower, and I planned to go to the Grouse Grind. It was the first time for them to try. ๐Ÿ™‚ After we got over it, we headed to Burnaby, where one of the friends live, for having late lunch.

Luckily, as the middle of long weekend, this restaurant was open, Wah Lun Chinese Restaurant. It is on Hastings Street, close to Willingdon Avenue. They have dim sum menu, too. I think you can order them until 3pm.

A husband of my friend ordered for us, for four.

Seafood Chow Mein

This wasn’t in the list that we ticked with a pen, but he ordered it outside the paper. He asked the noodles as hard (fried) one. This reminds me of Kata Yakisoba that I eat in Japan. It tasted good.

This was new to me, and I liked it. I could eat more!

Deep Fried Chicken Joint with Peppery Salt

This is chicken cartilage. Yup, I liked them, too. There were a lot to finish. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cod Jaw with Ginger & Green Onions

This was also new to me. Basically, you just suck the piece and take fish meat out of the jaw bone. It was marinated with sweet sauce.

Crystal Prawn Dumpling (Har Gow)

Dumpling is always good, right?

I liked all of his choices. We couldn’t finish them all, so we took the leftover home. And, for these volume, look at the total price, so cheap! I’m looking forward another opportunity!

From May to October, there was an event, Friday Night Market, in North Vancouver on every Fridays. On the second week of Friday in October, I searched when exactly the event ended, but each site did say a different date or didn’t mention any. So, I decided to go there anyway, and there were some food trucks there and some tents open.

As October, it was a much colder day. I quickly walked in the venue and looked at which trucks were there. Not many choices. The first one I chose was Roaming Dragon. They serve Pan-Asian food.

Collin and I tried their food at PNE, so I chose something different. I ordered two of this.

Chinese Pork Slider
(Asian spice braised Pork, Pickled Cucumber and Green Onions, Hoisin Sauce, Steamed Bun)

I liked the pork belly. Collin said it was OK, though he usually likes pork belly. Maybe because I waited for him finishing to work so that the food got cold.

You can check where they are or when they open for special events at the app.

Currently, Dine Out Vancouver is held. As part of this, so is Street Food City. If you haven’t tried their food, you have an opportunity at the event.
